About our Iris Clinic
Our IRIS clinic cares for pregnant and non-pregnant women affected by female genital mutilation which involves any cutting to the female external genitalia for cultural or non-medical reasons.
Female Genital Mutilation or FGM is a serious global issue that causes long-term health, sexual and emotional problems for a number of women in our community.
Enfield has a high number of women affected by this condition and it is necessary to serve our community, to safeguard the girl-child / women who have history of FGM to understand themselves and most importantly to help them achieve normality in childbirth.
Around 120 women are seen every year in our friendly female staffed clinic.
